Mystery animal scare in Memco , News - City - Ahmedabad Mirror,Ahmedabad Mirror:

More about the attack on 20 people Thursday night. The article has photos and interviews with a couple of the victims.

"Rejecting the idea that it could have been a domestic cat or dog, Zoo Superintendent R K Sahu said, “The behaviour and attacking pattern indicate the animal could have been a palm civet. It has to be a nocturnal creature prowling for food. Civets have a tendency of attacking the head and neck. Its claws leave deep wounds.”

Explaining further, Sahu said, “The civet considers man to be his enemy as humans are an obstacle for it while gathering food especially from residential areas.”"
